Blogger, Midlife at the Oasis

I'm an award-winning writer who sees the world through rose-colored bifocals. Okay, I don't really even need glasses yet although a magnifying glass would definitely be helpful but I've had some of the best experiences of my life since turning 50, including going to Australia with Oprah, winning two BlogHer Voices of the Year Awards and making my bucket list trip to Londolozi in South Africa.

At this point in my life, I know what makes me happy, and I'm going for it. I want to form a community of women who feel the same way, and who have the power to make things happen - for themselves and others. As someone once said - and, really, I would credit them if I could remotely remember who it was - it's the second act that has the happy ending.

6 reasons to fall for niagara falls
October 22, 2013
The last time I went to Niagara Falls was when I was 12 years old. I remember donning a raincoat to ride the legendary Maid of the Mist, and laughing out of pure joy and awe as we got totally soaked. So I was really excited to be invited to the TMS Family Travel Conference in Niagara Falls last month, and was looking forward to seeing whether the experience would be as powerful to me all these years later - especially after having just visited Victoria Falls this summer. The short answer is yes.
